Accessibility & Disability Services Committee
Charged by the Chief Academic Officers, the SOCHE Accessibility & Disability Services Committee is responsible for:
- Exploring collaboration in the areas of disability services to respond to students’ requests for accommodations, ADA compliance and cross-registration issues
- Providing and offering professional support and renewal for those who wish to enhance student, faculty and staff success through involvement in an inter-institutional and interdisciplinary community of peers
- Identifying trends and issues that affect teaching and learning, and prepare faculty and staff to meet them
- Engaging members of the academic community in the collaborative, scholarly practice of supporting the needs of people with disabilities.
Formerly known as the “Disability Services Committee,” the group voted in spring 2023 to change the committee title to be more inclusive and indicative of the services they provide to students. Thus, the committee title was changed to “Accessibility & Disability Services Committee.”
The SOCHE Accessibility & Disability Services Committee meets in a virtual environment approximately three times per year, with other meetings as requested. Contact Mindy Claggett by email at firstname.lastname@example.org for all upcoming meeting dates and to join this committee.
